Laura Fiorio: Tijuana in "La Border Curios"

6 PM Artist Talk

Before opening the exhibition, Laura Fiorio will discuss her work with Vincent Warren (Center for Constitutional Rights, New York) and Vera Wriedt (ECCHR).

7.30 PM Exhibition Opening

Borders are spaces, but they are also there to limit spaces. The photographs from the series "La Border Curios" by Italian artist Laura Fiorio show aspects of the US-Mexican border. The exhibition presents a variety of narratives about the experience of borders and migration: people, places, works of art. The limiting, arbitrary and repressive force of borders – be it spatial, legal, political or emotional – thus gains a discursive relevance. Fiorio sees photography as a means for social change, her participatory approach questions the borders that we have built in spaces and in our own heads.

The exhibition will be shown from 12 November 2018, Monday-Friday, 10am to 4pm.
